Welcome to CDO Orchestra.

Dear Students and Parents,

              Welcome to the new school year. My name is Toru Tagawa, and this is my 12th year as the Orchestra Director at Canyon del Oro High School. I am looking forward to working with all of you and making great music. At CDO, we have two orchestras, the Concert Orchestra and the Symphonic Orchestra. The Concert Orchestra is open to highly motivated beginners to intermediate level students, and the Symphonic Orchestra is only open to advanced students and audition is required.

In both orchestras, we will cover a variety of literature from J.S. Bach to Full Orchestra Music. We will be learning about composers, scales, key signatures in addition to playing your instrument.

(Parents/family members may order for $15). We will make T-shirts after we are able to meet in person. Please sign up for Google Classroom, and sign up to the remind if  you would like to be added to the list (For remind, you can sign up with your mobile phone, or by entering email address).

Symphonic Orchestra meets on the 2nd Period.
